. >> when you dig down to santa clara in general, oakland, san francisco san jose are taking on a substantial part of the growth. the region came up with a few scenarios and one is that they were all kind of anti-sprawl; some more center focus in others. most of the growth in santa clara will happen in san jose. also in the process we have been coordinating with the cities of oakland and san jose and a big transportation providers, we knew that the big three cities there is leadership in this process; if we were not okay with what was proposed, we have to make surethat we have a voice. a lot of this in san jose. >> unlike san francisco, in san jose most of the job centers are not within the downtown area opposite of what the situation is. , it makes that most difficult it explains why it is that way and why we have low projections in places like contra costa, low, even though the population is much larger than that of san francisco county and san mateo county which is slightly less. i can understand. at least contra costa has more transit than even the south bay does. my othe

you for being here. >>> thank you. my name is annmarie. i've been a resident of san francisco since 1995 in district 2. i am a mother to two preschoolers in addition to the proud guardian of two dogs. i have been a dog owner in san francisco about since i arrived here in 1995. it is thanks to my dogs that i come to know and love this city and its park and come to know my neighbors in my neighborhood all the better. i have experienced in many volunteer positions, including volunteering with the san francisco public schools and also with the humane society. i trained one dog colley to be a pet therapy dog and we went to a nursing home regularly and spread canine joy. i am interested in this position because i would like to be a voice for my neighbors, my community for our pets, and also for the wildlife that also come to appreciate more and more thanks to our dogs and spending time in the park. the birds and coyotes and other animals as far as issues that concern me specifically, i don't know what positions have been or things have been before you recently. there is certainly a balanc
the program that created universal health coverage in san francisco. it's amazing. the problems we have had, we have had are people taking their children to the emergency rooms for primary care. and we're eliminating that through programs that make sure that everybody has health insurance. so yes, i agree with this. and i think it needs to be expanded and it's relatively cheap. and my entire public health career has been in prevention. and what happens is when people have health insurance and they are seeing a doctor on a regular basis or health care provider and getting preventative services, that saves us so much money in the end. and also, for these businesses that are having to pay, their employees will be healthier. so it's a win-win in every situation and we need to really expand and i agree with this program. absolutely. thank you, chris for the question. >> thank you. >> i just wanted to add that i have been in a toothpaste commercial, crest toothpaste commercial, as a matter of fact and because of having dental services since i was a kid through access to health care is

'm the executive director of the san francisco fleet week association. and make no mistake about it, the city and county of san francisco are supporter of the united states military. san francisco fleetwood association is a nonprofit all volunteer organization that was formed to help organize and execute fleet week. and fleet week in 2012 like 2011 and 2010 has adopted a mission to promote the humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions of the united states military. we also, of course, will have the blue angels and the air show that comes with that. the ships will be coming in and the wonderful liberty call that the wonderful men and women in the armed forces will have in san francisco. the fleet week association also, as i say, has a humanitarian and response. along with the civilian disaster response community, we'll have a senior leader seminar taking place on thursday and friday in which the military and the civilian community learn from one another on how to provide disaster response. i should mention that on wednesday morning out at ocean beach, the marine corps and the navy
in that direction to supervisor olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of inequity i'm talking about. we need accountability. so i appreciate that and we need that. thank you. >> thank you, mr. everett. >> i'm the type the progressive who grieves believes that we're only as wealthy as the least among us. so means that in san francisco we can only go as far as the african-american young men and women who have been economically disadvantaged for generations here in the city. we need to provide jobs. with when we talk about green jobs of future and sustainable produce, we need to talk about how to feed the single mothers in those communities. we need comprehensive reforms to bring those disadvantaged communitis with us. we cannot provide those folks with jobs unless we reform our drug policies in san francisco, which essentially disadvantage and persecute young men of color who on a day to day basis are being subjected to the criminal justice system in a way that is not done by other members of our
called the san francisco clinic city cohort study or the hepatitis b cohort study, that specimens from is that study were used to develop the very first hiv antibody test to where a link to the past and the future. so, we're a link to the past and the future, and more than anything we're a link to the community. and our motto is where science meets community. our team does really cutting edge research on different kinds of prevention strategies, pre-exposure prophylaxis. and if you go to our website, join prep hiv, you'll see all of the many exciting studies that we have as well as our partnership with san francisco city clinic in launching the first demonstration project of pre-exposure prophylaxis, taking antihiv medicines to prevent new infections. we're studying topical gels, retro microbicide. the way we're going to end this epidemic is through a vaccine, we've controlled other infectious diseases through a cure. we're proud of our staff who contribute to this as well as the many study participants. and i'm just going to close with a quick word about the project. the way that this
juveniles definitely need to be treated differently, and certainly here in san francisco, we do. we very seldom -- in fact, i know for a fact we've not criminalized simple possession drugs. there's a lot of other vehicles we use to deal with juveniles before it ever gets to a prosecution for possession of drugs. and i think that there's some good reasons for that. i think that when we're talking about juveniles, we should explore every possibility that we can to decriminalize juvenile behavior in order to provide them with an opportunity to correct their behavior and move on so they can get education and get employment and they can become a productive member of society. and generally the juveniles, again, that we deal with are not any different than the adults we deal with. these are juveniles that often come from homes where supervision of the home is either not there or is very lacking. there's really a significant lack of role model support so there are a lot of problems already. the juveniles that generally come to our attention already bring with themselves. the problem is there's s

forces will have in san francisco. the fleet week association also, as i say, has a humanitarian and response. along with the civilian disaster response community, we'll have a senior leader seminar taking place on thursday and friday in which the military and the civilian community learn from one another on how to provide disaster response. i should mention that on wednesday morning out at ocean beach, the marine corps and the navy are setting up what's called the shock trauma platoon, a field hospital you and i might think of as a mass unit. and coming into ocean beach in cooperation with the national park service is what we call an lcac, acronym, landing craft air. it will be a demonstration of how medical supplies will be brought in by amphibious supplies during a disaster. out of lake merced, we'll be landing helicopters to demonstrate medical evacuation procedures to the civilian community. having said all that, we have a cast and characters here to speak today and we'll be available for questions afterwards. we have major general mike meyer, retired marine corps. he is the

gaime and i'm an immigrant in the united states who lives in san francisco now. i've been on the commission for two years now. and for the most part in the last two years i feel [speaker not understood]. commissioner haile worked here prior to me, spoke of all the work that's being done. and i feel like we're leading up to what this commission is capable of and i've been getting exposed by going to the different districts that [speaker not understood] the city of san francisco has, one of them being your district, actually, last month, chair kim. and one of the things that i'm learning is how much the immigrant community is unaware of what options and what possibilities and what [speaker not understood] that they have in the city of san francisco, that they don't always have to be afraid. that there is language access and they can access it. and what we as commission can do is expose them and let them know in our own communities. i know the [speaker not understood] community isn't as aware of what the city can offer them and i think that's just the very beginning of what w
and san francisco for 30 years, so i have a long history with the area. i think some of the things important for everyone to understand is lack of availability to find ten, 15 acres this the san francisco or peninsula area. it really is almost impossible to find. as james and sfmta have been looking for sites, you could pull out a parcel map and partially identify 10, 15, 20 sites that exist. they are that size. to accommodate the uses you are looking to replace. from a big picture standpoint you are dealing with a small supply of properties that could work. whether they are available or not. then an incredibly large demand for sites like that. from a land perspective, you know, sites -- there's a higher and better use for most of the sites. you look at the rehabilitation that's gone on in san francisco and all the new development, most are redeveloped for offices, research and development, biotech, you know, housing. there is a higher value than storing towed cars. you know, it is used as incredibly difficult to find. when you find an opportunity you will be one of multiple users,

5:00 this morning. elsewhere, accident southbound 101 cesar chavez in san francisco blocking a lane, chp on scene. roadwork southbound through mill valley those bright lights are very distracting take extra care. >>> it has been a violent night in san jose. police are investigating the city's 35th and 36th homicides of the year latest shortly after midnight in east san jose many officers say a man standing with several people near a residence was hot to death by someone who approached them then ran. in downtown area a fight 100 block of south second street a man died at the hospital. >>> vallejo police investigating a deadly double shooting that may have result from a dispute between neighbors. one man is under arrest. amy hollyfield is live at the scene. >> reporter: i just spoke with a man who lives on the street, he says he cannot believe this happened here. police arrived here last night and found two bodies in a yard here it is a nice, well-kept street with new construction, two-story homes. they arrested a 65-year-old after a hostage negotiator convinced him to surrender. he d
on with that young person. we deal with young people but are only san francisco residence, 11 to 17. we deal with misdemeanors as well as felonies. get all of the kids have to have been a restaurant with a criminal charge in order for them to come into our center. we deal closely with sros. we have very close relationships with sros, and we would contact them and what we know and -- let em know when we have heard of different situations that are coming out. 90% of kids have school issues, whether they need help with graves, attendance, behavior, getting back on track. some of them are failing and need assistance, and that is the ideal relationship of having it so close to us we are making a seamless transition for the services the on person needs. we have a very comprehensive data system. one of only you need data systems in san francisco, we have been tracking all young people arrested in the city since 1998. goowe started tracking school address about eight years ago, and in the tracking of those we broke it down to where kids have been a resident of school for offenses committed at school
, african americans cannot come back to san francisco if they don't feel confident that we can educate their students at a very high level. their children at a very high level to give them opportunity. so, education is a key part of this outmigration. and i think we should have a stronger partnership, really between the human rights commission that is working on this and our educational system because if you look at outmigration, we also have a part in that because when you look at these scores, anyone -- any middle class african-american person would look at these scores and say, i'm not moving back here because there's nowhere i can educate my children. and that is a very real reality. so, just to get back to also what our deputy superintendent is saying, we are trying to upset the culture that we've had for many decades in the school district. as you know it is like turning the titanic around. it is hard to change a culture. it is hard to change an infrastructure that is very, very traditional in this district. and, so, i think that these small gains that we've made -- and i think w
educators of san francisco. >> thank you very much. and especially thank you supervisor mar for bringing this up. i think when the previous speaker spoke about concern about obligation, i think that's the kind of language we in the schools hear all the time from people. you realize the state does not talk about how much they have cut from education. it's around $20 billion in the last five years but they will only consider it a cut if they actually put that money in your pocket and reach back in and took it out. when we talk about underfunding of schools and the way schools have been structures to reserve money from the state, the state legislative office does not consider that cut. and that is a real problem just as the talk about obligation is a real problem. if you're going to build something in the schools, you must build it on some sort of stable base. so if there's money that is deferred because things like that happen, that money needs to be owned up to. it needs to be contributed then at a later time. i'm very pleased that the $43 million in unanticipated funds has brought people
dynamic. in particular here in san francisco the market is very strong for real estate. even as the city negotiates for extensions of leases and renewals we are finding prices of buildings we have been previously leasing are going up tremendously. i understand the tightness of the market. i'm not as family with daly city or with the peninsula. i think i need more information to be convinced on this lease. san francisco i understand. * given the value of real estate and value of site you own, i'm curious as from your interest point you want to lock in the sfmta ten years. given the fact the value of this property could go up why it is in prologis's interest to lock in when you may find a tenant that has the ability to pay far more than the city of san francisco. >> that is a great question. it is an analysis we constantly do in our very high demand areas like the city of san francisco. but the decision i made was to provide the certainty of this investment. locking it into a longer term. most groups that we were talking with were interested in a longer term, because it is very challengin
dependent on san francisco to address a significant part of the region's growth and transportation challenge. so, we need to determine how to manage these 400,000 plus new daily auto trips. we know that there is not much low-hanging fruit. everything involves a trade-off. and that we need to do things differently to meet this challenge. we know that also that a lot of the growth in san francisco is going to happen in the city's core, the soma, the mission bay, and new auto trends in neighborhoods are going to counteract our efforts to improve new travel times, [speaker not understood]. we know that it's going to take new ways of doing things, such as leveraging the private sector investment, between the core and the south bay. [speaker not understood]. where do we put new capacity and how much new capacity, and how much reallocating right away is it going to take. we analyze that it would take to actually achieve some of significant goals, so, in addition to just making sure we don't fall subject to those low speeds on the previous slide, we also have significant goals beyond just
